    to s_vares. I have a 2004 FX4 crew cab with 170000 kms I have had the ticking noise since I bought it used. Love the truck it was driving great but on my way to work it started to stutter and then stall but would start right back up with good oil pressure on the guage but when I would try and drive it the stuttering would start and stall and engine light was on. I towed it to the garage and they said the engine had a lot of sludge and the engines codes were saying bad phasers. The truck still starts fine. Can this truck be saved or not. Just curious

    Hello. I was reading your article on the cam phaser replacement. Did you also have a rough idle? Mine is doing a weird thing where it goes out of time. It appears that the culprits are the same ones you changed. Trying to decide on either replacing these or dumping the truck. Thanks. Dave

    Hello Sir, I have read your article about the whole timing job on a 5.4 with cam phasers.
    I have one question, how to set the crankshaft before putting on the timing chains, on the 12 o clock position?

    Please let me know, you can send your reply to

    Regards, Ad.

    Hi , hows it going???
    I am about to do my cam phasers and and tensioners chains and guides, but one thing I notice is you don't mention any special tools other than the 303-1046. Did you not require the use of camshaft holding tools or spring compressor tool?

    Any help will be appreciated thanks

    I looked on ebay for your timing set and phaser kit but could not find it. Do you still have them?

    I just wanted to say amazing write up on the Final Repair Guide man! I followed it and did the whole timing job myself in the parking lot at my place!

    BUT... My truck seems to run awful now, can't hold a steady idle. When I unplug the Cam Position Sensors, it seems to run just fine. I double and triple checked the timing marks and turned the motor over a few revolutions by hand before starting too. It was a rough start though when it first started, could it possibly have jumped time and that's why my truck runs fine when I unplug the CPS's? Or do you think I could have tightened the cam phasers too tight? Because it seemed like my torque wrench was not working. You really seem to know whats going on in these 5.4 trucks and I really appreciate any advice you would have!
